What was I thinking. If it wasn't filmed with an IMAX camera then it won't be the full size IMAX. If it wasn't filmed in 3D then it won't be the 'out in the audience' 3D. There were scenes with the jets that did not turn out all that well and they were not clear and looked as if they were hanging from a string to be filmed. The 3D did add some depth but that was all. Top Gun is still a great movie but the added cost for the movie was all hype. They should have just brought it back even with the 3D but not call it IMAX. I will admit that I did not watch this at a true IMAX but at a conventional theater converted to a mini IMAX. The picture did not fill even this small screen (the aspect ratio was not correct). There was a space at the top and bottom of the screen just like showing a true theater aspect ration on your widescreen TV.

Okay, so it's not the greatest movie ever made, but it's one I've always enjoyed. It was not made as a 3d film, so there isn't all sorts of things coming out at your face. But I enjoyed the feeling of the dimension in the regular scenes and the airplane sequences were pretty cool. I'm not sure it's worth the high price of admission, but if you are a big fan with a Fandango gift card, go for it.

The 3D was done very well - it wasn't overdone but added to the experience. I would advise you to go see it in the Theater if you are a Top Gun fan! The Ticket price was a bit high - but it was Top Gun - any other movie - I would not have paid that much to see.

Great to see this movie in IMAX 3D!!! What a way to experience all the action, flight scenes, and to know that Val Kilmer could have gotten his eyebrows trimmed. The IMAX 3D puts you right in the movie, to discover the surroundings like you're there.
This is a classic, defining the 80's, and would have been nice to see a part 2, picking up 25 years later. Who knows it might still happen!!!! Thanks to all that made this happen in IMAX

Watching this classic on IMAX 3D was great - loved many of the scenes now on the IMAX screen!!! "Feeling the need. . .the need for Speed!!"
